On behalf of the Organizing Committee I am pleased to invite you to attend the 8th Shelf life International Meeting (SLIM 2017) in Bangkok, Thailand.  The event is an important meeting occasion for specialists in the field and offers the possibility to weigh up the status of Italian and international scientific research concerning the actual problems connected with food shelf-life.

The structure of the conference, the heterogeneity of participants and the careful selection of scientific contributions presented by industries and academic institutions, are the key aspects of the conference, which significantly contributes to identify the most relevant problems and raise scientific discussions, laying the basis for further projects of research collaboration.

We look forward to meeting you in Bangkok, Thailand.
